    This entire conversation is stupid.

    Oded Fehr is Ashkenazi Jewish, and Ashkenazi Jews often look Middle Eastern because they ARE Middle Eastern. They are indigenous to the Levant. Why is this so difficult for people to accept? Do you think denying the reality of Jewish origins will “Free Palestine” or whatever? Because I guarantee it won’t.

    Ashkenazi Jews are Middle Eastern. Accept it. Move on.
